The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Originally considered V10, the variety of different solutions which work have made many suggest V9 is more appropriate. Bierstadt is a beta-intensive problem with lots of sequences and subtleties which for the most part will not be discussed, although it should suffice to say that they are all within a grade of one another.

Begin crouched and match on the bottom of a low and right-facing starting flake and climb up and slightly left via obvious features and heel-hooks to topout just left of the shallow dihedral and mini-arete. Bierstadt stays with you until you are topping it out and unless it is well within your price range, you will have to really work for the send.


The obvious and well-chalked line on the right side of the Bierstadt Corridor just before the A-frame you walk under as you enter Area A proper.


A couple Organic pads and maybe a spotter/pad-mover to cushion the blow as you work out the nuances.
